I notice today Lincolns lip was pink. It was black before. Its not raised or anything. Should I just leave it or apply some cream to it?

He also does eat a raw diet if that may have anything to do with it

I've never dealt with this, but wondering if it's related to this?

I think Lisa is right! I deal with lip fold pyoderma on an ongoing basis with Onyx. Run to Shopper's and grab a tin of Penaten (in the baby care section) and apply it twice a day. Onyx has very droopy lip folds and they get very irritated, very often, and this generally clears things up in a couple of days.

I dont think we have that stuff in Canada. This is the first time hes had this. Is this something that will cause issues and require tons of money? I have put over 5k in him and im just worn out lol. Hes a BYB bred dog...I have some cream in a tin meant for cow utters I use on his paws..dont remember the name. Can I use this stuff?

Wow he also rubs his face on the carpet too....interesting. I wish his jowels would tighten up. Maybe he wouldnt drool so flippin much lol

We have it everywhere in Calgary - I think it's just in the US that they dont carry it. I got a new tin at Shoppers last week. I think the big tin cost $13. From what I understand the zinc in the penaten that really helps, and it is also a barrier for the moisture so that the lip actually gets a chafe to heal. I think someone on the board did the equivalent of a lip tuck, but this works fine for me. Because he gets so drooly when he's playing with a ball, I am pretty sure it is going to be an ongoing thing, but it doesn't bother him as long as I keep the skin intact.

That sounds like Bag Balm. I wouldn't use it for the lip, though I do use it on the nose.

I think Desitin cream can also help if you can't find the Penaten.
